Glen Hay Falconer Foundation Brewing Scholarship Program


From an outstanding group of talented applicants, Madeleine McCarthy of Von Ebert Brewing (Portland, OR) has been named recipient of the 2022 Glen Hay Falconer Foundation Siebel Brewing Scholarship.  Our scholarship program encompasses over half of the United States geography and this year’s scholarship drew candidates from throughout that region.  The scholarship is to the WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology that takes place this November in Chicago.  The Concise Course in Brewing Technology is a two-week intensive program that covers every topic critical to successful brewery operations.  

Madeleine (“Maddy”) McCarthy began as a home brewer and translated that passion to a professional brewing career through hard work and perseverance.  Maddy began at a gluten-free brewery making wort from roasted chestnuts and lentils, learning the craft and developing new recipes.  From there, Maddy worked her way to larger craft breweries and now to her current position at Von Ebert Brewing. In the words of a Selection Committee member, “Maddy’s journey pays tribute to her utmost determination, humility, and career vision.  And this journey has just begun for her and all of us.” Click here to read more>>
